30 Denier Body Sensor™ Tights
Great product, expensive but worth it
Whilst I do think £6 for one pair of tights is a little on the pricey side, these ones are probably worth it. They DO NOT ladder or get holes. EVER! I have (accidentally) scraped my leg on a brick wall, fallen on gravel and caught my watch on these tights and they just don't break! So they last forever in comparison with cheaper tights which might cost less but need replacing every three days (when you are as clumsy as me).
I would say they look a lot thicker in appearance than 30 dernier, they are definitely on the opaque end of the black tights spectrum. Plus side: you can't tell in the slightest if you haven't shaved your legs for 2 weeks and are wearing these tights.
These have become a failsafe item in my work wardrobe. They are comfy, true to fit and really warm and I never have to worry about carrying a spare pare in case of ladders. I would definitely recommend them.

Good support but 30 denier appearance
Very pleased with these tights give excellent support but give 30 denier appearance. Would like to buy lots more to stock up for the Autumn but now out of stock. Please M&S restock these.

Sound good - in reality, just awful.........
Bought these instore yesterday and have them on for the first time today. Initially, thought these sounded fantastic and, once on, they do feel really good in the leg and thigh, EXCEPT for the fact that they have a stitched seam that runs over the tummy that is far from smooth. In fact, it lays in ridges from the gusset right up to your waist and is quite visible through clothing. I'm sure I could play a tune on mine, pretty much like a washboard instrument. Will not be purchasing these again. BTW - I'm 6ft 2 and of slim build - perhaps if I were larger, it wouldn't happen, but I had difficulty getting them on in the first place, so how someone larger would manage, the mind boggles.

I purchased two pairs and am very pleased with the look and fit.
However, I am torn between 20 denier firm support tights, which I have just started to wear and love the feeling of support at the ankle, calf and thigh versus these which look very good on the leg and support the thigh and T&B. The only way round the quandery is to buy a couple of pairs of each variety intersperced with support underwear and 15 denier. It depends on the day and the occasion and I wouldn't buy my tights from any other source than M&S. Finally, I'm glad I stocked up on 40 denier shiny bodysensor tights as M&S no longer sell them, and yet they are great. Why M&S?
